High track and low track, These two configurations refer to the position of the tracks or rails on which the door panels slide. The choice between high track and low track sliding doors should be based on your specific needs, preferences, and the characteristics of your space. In a high track sliding door, the upper track or rail is positioned higher up on the wall or door frame. The bottom of the door panel typically has rollers or guides that glide along the high track. High track provides a smooth and seamless transition between indoor and outdoor spaces as there is no track on the floor, reducing the risk of tripping or obstacles. It’s Easier to keep the track clean since it’s not at floor level, making it a good choice for areas with high foot traffic. Also, allows for a more simple and modern aesthetic because there’s no visible track on the floor. As for a low track sliding door, the lower track or rail is positioned at or near floor level. The door panel typically has rollers or guides that run along this lower track. They are easier to install as it doesn’t require precise alignment with a high track and often more cost-effective compared to high track sliding doors. Low track provides a stable and secure foundation for the door panels, making it a good choice for heavy or large doors.
